Steinberg: Ted Laurent on Hamilton’s mind ahead of GC108

There’s no replacing Ted Laurent.

I feel for Ted Laurent - imagine waiting for a year due to a cancelled season and then having to miss the game you wanted since the last time you played in the Grey Cup. Ya gotta know, his spirit will be with the Tigers on Grey Cup day!

Agreed. Going to be tough just watching for him, these chances don't come every year & some never get the chance at all.
